419th FW Warriors:

Veterans Day is a time to express gratitude and admiration to all of the men and women who have gone before us in the United States Armed Forces.

Serving with integrity and pride, each took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. Let us never forget their service and countless sacrifices to protect and ensure our freedom.

Tomorrow, as we honor our veterans, let’s also take a moment to stop, reflect, and renew our own personal commitment to this nation. Please consider what today means to you and what legacy you hope to leave behind for future Airmen.

As always, I’m proud to wear this uniform and serve alongside all of you. I sincerely appreciate your ongoing service and dedication to this country and to the 419th FW.

Enjoy the holiday!
